Garden Writers Association

Well, I'm happy to announce that as of this morning, I am now a member of the Garden Writers Association. For several years, I have been thinking about this...and well, I finally submitted my application. Many thanks to HS (aka Holly the Horticulturist) for her encouragement.

I'm looking forward to attending a few events and meeting a few folks. And, most importantly, (kidding, of course) getting some of that great swag! Ha.

Yesterday, Gotta Garden got a makeover. It's about time, don't you think? Four years old this month and counting...For a long time, I kept telling myself that I would keep my blog looking the same for continuity and familiarity...however, people change, time moves on...and I just felt it was the right moment for Gotta Garden to put on a new face. It's still me and I'll still be doing what I've been doing for four years...although, hopefully, with ever improving content and photos (practice should count for something).

Congrats on your new membership! Your updated blog looks very nice...easier than remodeling a bathroom or a garden bed, right?

I like the new look!

The new blog design is lovely.

Shady Gardener said...

Your New Look seems a celebration of being a new member of the Garden Writers Association. Congratulations on both! :-)

Hi Christine: Thanks! Oh yes! Much, much easier...even for the non-tech types like myself.

Thank you, Les!

Appreciate it, Hartwood's amazing what's available for free out there!

Thanks, Shady Gardener...a happy coincidence!

Thank you all for coming by!

Hi Catherine,
I really like the new look of your blog! I've even thought about joining GWA at some point, but I need it to be a meaningful and purposeful reason before I actually do it. I keep getting ideas on things I think I might do since I've been garden blogging for a while now and have met a lot of garden writers, etc...If, and when, I figure it all out, I'll probably join too. Congrats;)

Oh, I should have started out with, 'are you enjoying all this snow?' It is certainly a winter blast!!
